BELLSHILL charity fundraiser Ray Mitchell has presented yet another cheque.

Ray, who raises funds by organising raffles in the town’s Post Office, has donated £400 to the Lanarkshire Rape Crisis Centre.

Anne McGuire, centre manager, said: “We support victims of all types of sexual violence, including child sex abuse, and it is important that we get that message across.

“We have witnessed a 25 per cent increase in demand for telephone support over the past year and the issues we help our users to deal with vary.

“We rely on funding applications and fundraising to sustain our service delivery and we really appreciate all the efforts that people like Ray make to support us and allow us to continue our crucial work.”
